Default Re: Superman the Movie = STILL the greatest superhero movie

The movie has so much cheese and at the same time so little tension or emotion I find it very hard to 'get into' so to speak. Its still a good movie, but mainly because of the performances with what they were given, and IMO, it has been surpassed at least more than 15 times.
I like cheesy, seeing as I am a big fan of Lois and Clark, and that is both cheesy and campy, especially the villains.

Still, I thought the ways Clark Kent changes into Superman in S:TM made it too likely someone would discover him changing.

L&C did some homage, but they also did things different. I liked that Clark was competent. You also got to see why Clark loved Lois. It was a more believable dynamic. I also thought Luthor was much better done.

The reverse time and fix everything ending was just a step too far.
